Family Ski Vacations in Turkey

February 25, 2011

Recently read a great post on the Traveling with MJ travel site about off the beaten path ski options, entitled Turkey Offers Great Ski Values, contributed by Thomas Cook.  While it’s not uncommon to have clients interested in Turkey for its beaches or cultural sites, it is definitely more unusual to find those looking to trek to Turkey for skiing.  It turns out Turkey has altitudes comparable to the Rockies with modern ski resorts, like Uludag Ski Center which is just one hour from the airport.  For the adventure seekers, there are opportunities for heli-skiing on an active volcano at the Erciyes Ski Center.  With the Turkish Lira valued at about 1.60 to the US $1, the vacation dollar stretches further at these ski resorts.

Some great new options to consider for those looking to combine a fabulous cultural trip with a family ski vacation!
